Extract recipe for a Murphy's Irish Stout clone?
Hi all,

For my next batch, I want to make a stout on the lines of Murphy's Irish. One of my friends loves Murphy's and his 40th B-day party is coming up. If I can do it right, I can bring a bunch to the party.

I have read some of the other stout recipes on here as well...if you think one of these might fit the bill, let me know....

Any thoughts/suggestions? I am a n00b to brewing, so something extract w/specialty steeping grains would be the extent of my abilities (for now :) )
thx in advance

Here you go.

Note, this person is going way overboard on their treatment of the grains. All of those grains used are roasted speciality grains, and don't need to be mashed at all. They can be steeped for 45 minutes or so in 155 degree water prior to boiling and adding the extract.

Looks good. How rigid are the aging schedules for a Stout? I notice that the recipe calls for 2 week primary and 1-2 months secondary, but no mention of bottle conditioning times? I assume that stouts bet better with age?

almost all beer gets better with age. I've never made that particular recipe, either.

When is your friend's birthday?

December, though they might move the party to November 25th, in which case there might not be enough time. that won't stop me from brewing a stout next, but will put the kaibosh on supplying the party with any stout...

the beer will probably be ready to drink by then if you want to push it along. it will benefit (as will most beers) from a longer time in the secondary and in the bottles.

Anyway... I have a stout that I made 2 weeks ago (?) that I fully intend to open on my birthday (Dec 1st) for the first time. I expect I won't open the LAST bottle until sometime in February, and I expect that one to taste better.

You'll be two weeks behind me, but you could probably drink it at the party.

However, I would suggest using the stout as a gift instead of a party supply. Give the guy a bunch of it at his party. He can open some then if he wants, but make sure to tell him that it'll be a heck of a lot better after new years.

that is my plan B. it fits in well with what we normally give each other for our B-days, which is beer.

I brewed this Beamish clone a couple months ago at a friends house. I wish I could comment on the final product but with my friends busy schedule I have yet to get back over there.

5# Pale malt
.25# Chocolate malt
.75# Roasted Barley
.75# Wheat malt
.75# Corn sugar
Northern Brewer Hops 8 AAUs 60min
Ale yeast
O.G. 1.039

For a simple extract brew, replace pale and wheat malt with 4-4.5# LME of your choice and just steep the choc. and roast. malt with your preferred method. The lower gravity will result in a faster turnover and an easier drinking brew.

thx PT- I will keep that one on file too. I was looking at my LHBS and he puts together his own recipe kits based on his creations, and he has a stout on there. Now I have 3.....dammit I might have to make them all :)

Walker 10-14-2005 03:54 PM

then I won't point you at my coffee stout recipe. you would have four of them then. :)
